Teammates in the same camp until a few days ago to opponents on the field today, the episode between Prithvi Shaw and Mohammed Siraj was the highlight in the first semi-final match of Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018, on October 17. The mini-battle between the two youngsters saw the contest between Mumbai and Hyderabad lit-up at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, on Wednesday.

Hyderabad’s right arm pacer Siraj tried to sledge Mumbai’s Shaw as the duo engaged in a brief banter in the second innings of the match. However, it didn’t end well for Siraj, as Shaw hit him for a 6, 6, and 4 on the last three balls of the over.

The first half of the over saw Mohammed Siraj dominating Prithvi Shaw by bowling short-pitch deliveries. Shaw was in pain and visibly in discomfort to play those deliveries. On the second ball of the over, the youngster lost his bat, too, while playing the shot.

Prithvi Shaw has had enough. The flamboyant opener hit a 6, 6, and a 4 to end the over. Also, he reached his half-century in only 34 balls. The first six was in the third man region, while the other was pulled over the fine-leg fielder. The third shot was pulled away too, this time towards the long-leg boundary.

Chasing the target of 247 runs, Mumbai got off to a solid start with Rohit Sharma and Prithvi Shaw adding 73 for the first wicket. Mehdi Hassan later castled Prithvi Shaw for 64 runs. Shreyas Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane stitched a partnership of 73 runs before the match was called off.

The impromptu rain curtailed the match proceedings later in the day. However, it was Mumbai who progressed in the Final, as the team won the match by 60 runs (by VJD method). It was quite a battle to watch for the fans.
